The historical run that has come has run up. Gold prices have increased by almost 20 per cent in the last two and a half months. And even after that, there can be a strong outlook, so we will present a little discussion about this before you, so before this, we will understand how gold and markets behave, so if we talk about gold and stock market historically.

So, when equities underperform, gold outperforms. We see such a negative relationship between these two asset classes. If we want to understand through some examples, then in 20078, 2000, when the subprime crisis happened, stocks A huge crash was seen in the market and the prices of gold were seen to be bullish there, hence gold is also treated as an inflation hedge and termed as a safe haven.

Today Stock Market News - 16/04/2024 | Today News 6

It is known that there is a safe and secure asset class, so recently also we can see that when the crash of Covid-19 happened, we saw that the market was around 75 800 and the prices of Nifty were around 75 800. At that time too, it was seen performing well. A very strong outlook was visible.

We can see in this chart that even in the fall of Covid-19, gold prices were performing well. After that, as soon as the market picked up, gold prices started falling. The prices also remained stable at some places and their returns were either marginal or in single digits or were in the negative range, but if we talk about the recent past, if we talk about the last one or two months, then gold was also quite high.

Well, we all know about the runup of the stock market, Nifty is also at all time high and gold is also at all time high, so if we talk about it, what is the reason for this, then there is an increase of about 20% in gold prices. This has been seen in the last two months and this is not from India’s perspective, this is from global perspective, so here we will not talk about rupee depreciation, so the first reason here is that it is regarding China, so in China we know.

That the real estate market in China is in a very bad state and the Chinese stock market is also not performing so well, so the investors there are shifting towards gold like we do in India. In China, gold gets an emotional question, similarly in China, which is its counterpart, gold is also a very attractive asset class in China.

Emotionally, the people there are very much invested in gold and due to this, the remaining asset classes are under pressure. If we are performing, then the demand for gold is increasing a lot and that is why the buying of gold in China and other emerging markets is looking quite strong. If we talk about the global market, then the demand is on a high.

It is on the higher side and because of that, we have seen the prices of gold increasing. The next reason, as quoted by Goldman Sachs in its report, is that the war going on in the Middle East. So, this Israel-Iran conflict has also come back into the limelight a bit, so as the geo- political tensions in the Middle East increase, there is a greater possibility that this situation may get worse.

So, the investors are moving towards safe haven asset class, hence the demand for gold seems to have increased a bit, hence due to this same safe haven demand, we saw an increase in the prices of gold. This is in the last two months and along with this, the expectations of interest rate cut are coming continuously.

Because gold is a physical asset, there is an opportunity cost of holding it and this means that if the interest rate goes down in future, then the actual When there will be rate cuts, then after that the unaffordable cost of holding gold will reduce in the future, due to this also the outlook of gold looks positive and this is what Gold Man Sachs also says that till now That all the events which have been seen historically are not playing out right now, a one off event, here we are seeing in the scenario of gold prices that the markets are also overall positive

and the economy is strong. It is visible and despite that, gold A is still outperforming, and its outlook may be good going forward, so I hope you have understood the correlation as to what the reason behind the recent run is up in gold prices. So, what are the reasons behind this, here we did a small discussion, so I hope you all would have liked this Economics Explained section and you would have been able to know why the prices of gold are increasing.
